Horse left to die by rider after crash with car

A hunt has been launched for two men after a horse was dumped following a collision with a car.

The animal was seriously injured during a procession in Great Bridge Road in Bilston on Sunday, after she bolted into a vehicle.

Who were the Dambusters and how did they use their bouncing bombs in WWII?

The impact smashed the windscreen of a familys Volkswagen and left the mare lying in the road and bleeding profusely.

At the time of the incident the horse was attached to a traditional carriage.

The men riding her later fled the scene – dragging the trap with them.
